Prayer Works!

Hola Hola!! We just barely had a zone activity that went really well. The sister missionaries prepared tacos with rice and beans. They are masters in the kitchen. Personally, i´m beginning to like having Sister missionaries in the zone. Last tuesday, they brought cookies for everyone. The zone is doing great, we have alot of baptisimal dates and as of right now, Villa Alemana Oeste, our zone, has the most baptisms of the year in the entire mission!!! Represent!! You better believe that will keep happening for the rest of the year!

We had stake conference this weekend. It was a two day thing, saturday and Sunday. On sunday, it was a special broadcast, where Elder Anderson and Elder Perry, talked to us through satelite. Everyone was really excited, we had over 5 investigators there, and I had great expectations. Two Apostles were going to talk, and our investigators were going to be able to hear them!! The unthinkable happened... The conference started, and we had the pleasure of hearing them speak for a grand total of 3 minutes. Right in the middle of a talk, the satelite went DOWN. We were sitting in the silence and dark for about one hour and 20 min. They finally got smart and connected a laptop to the Wifi, then connected the laptop the the transmission and put it on the projector. Just in time to hear the last 10 min of Elder Perry´s talk. haha. I was praying multiple times so it would work, and in the end, I guess we got a little inspiration out of it haha.

I would like to share an experience that streangthened my testimony of prayer. This last Thursday, I set 10 thousand pesos, which is equivilent to 20 dollars, on my bed, as i was changing cloths. We were in a hurry, so I left without putting the 10 thousand pesos in my pocket. The interesting part is that I left the bedroom window open, the door open, and the opposite bedroom window open, so there could be some fresh air blowing through, because it is very hot outside!! So, we get through the day, and when I get back, I remembered that I put that money on my bed, but it was not there! Where could it be? That money was my food for the week. I looked everywhere and could not find it for the life of me. We moved every bed, every closet, turned the house upside down to try and find that money, but no success. After all my useless attempts, I decided to humble myself, and occupy the tool that works every time, PRAYER. I kneeled down and prayed, asking God to help me find that money, because I needed it. After the prayer, I kept looking for a little bit, and.... still no success! I went to bed, accepting the fact that I had lost my 10 mil pesos. The next morning, I woke up, got ready, studied, did the every day missionary morning routine, then went out to work. Right as we walked out the front gate, my companion said, NO WAY! I did not know what he was talking about until I looked down on the sidewalk, undernieth a big pile of leaves, and saw a blue bill that said 10,000 pesos on it!! It was folded in three, just as I left it!! I could not believe it, I was so thankful. The first thing I did after that was a prayer of thanks for what God has blessed me with. God taught me a valuable lesson, and my testimony of prayer has been streangthened. Prayer works, Use It!

I love you all!!
